WL High School
Whitmore Lake Public Schools prides itself on being a district committed to establishing a strong relationship with the parents of our students and with our community as a whole. We are a "School of Choice" district, providing an exceptional, personalized education for all students. Our district is small enough for us to wrap our arms around your child and to help nurture them to grow into caring, responsible young adults. At the same time, we are large enough to provide your child with an excellent education and a variety of other opportunities, so that he/she is ready for the global society of the future.

Whitmore Lake Public Schools is conveniently located about ten minutes north of downtown Ann Arbor and about ten minutes south of the US-23/I-96 interchange. Whitmore Lake, Michigan - a wonderful place to raise a family within a community that cares, attend a school district where your child is much more than a number, and live the small town life while still being within easy reach of all the amenities of the Ann Arbor/Detroit Metropolitan area.
